Sword BJ

Population5.848 billion


CurrencySwordian Aurum

The Kingdom of Sword BJ is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 5.848 billion Swordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solair. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sword BJian economy, worth 540 trillion Swordian Aurums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 92,471 Swordian Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sword BJ's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sword BJ is ranked 80,551st in the world and 82nd in Force for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 812.38 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
